About Vancouver Dietitians
Vancouver Dietitians was started in 2016 by two Registered Dietitians, Alexandra Inman & Stephanie Dang, to share their passion for nutrition and health with others. They are dedicated to providing high quality services that are rooted in science to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. Since then, the Vancouver Dietitians team has expanded - scroll down to 'Meet The Team'!
Meet The Team
Alexandra Inman, BSc, RD is a Registered Dietitian with the College of Dietitians of British Columbia and is currently working as a clinical dietitian with Fraser Health where she has experience in Medicine, Pediatrics, and Maternity (to name a few!). Alex graduated with honours from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Food, Nutrition, and Health, where she also completed her Dietetics degree, including her internship with Vancouver Coastal Health.
Alex has a passion for helping people reach their health and wellness goals through evidenced-based nutrition counselling and education. She is particularly interested in plant-based diets (vegetarian, vegan), pre- and post-natal nutrition, toddler and child feeding, digestive health, and sports nutrition.
Alex is a weight-inclusive practitioner. She believes in focusing on health gain rather than weight loss, and that health and wellness are worthwhile goals no matter your body shape or size. She takes great pride in helping her clients ditch dieting and build a positive relationship with food and exercise.
Alex believes in lifelong learning, and is always staying on top of the latest, best available nutrition research and education to help serve her clients better. When she's not working, you can find Alex experimenting with new recipes in her kitchen, trying a new exercise class, or exploring the North Shore mountains.
